Piet Mondrian

1872-1944 Holland/Abstract Art

 

Brief Biography-Piet Mondrian (Pieter Cornelis) was born in Amersfoort in 1872. He entered the Amsterdam Academy of Fine Art in 1892. Mondrian moved to Paris in 1911 where cubism influenced him, and his work drifted away from a symbolist form to abstraction. He was a co-founder of the periodical Der Stijl in which he theorised about art, and named his style of painting Neo Plasticism; it consisted mainly of geometrical shapes and primary colours. He moved from London to New York in 1940 where he settled. His paintings had a strong influence on art from that period hence.
